I am not sure how I feel about this book. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be more about the Iowa Writers' Workshop but it was more about the relationship between the author and Frank Conroy. At times it got a little too "pompous" for my tastes but it was fun to read about places in Iowa City and some of the favorite haunts around here. Frank Conroy was probably be shocked to know that the Foxhead looks exactly the way it did way back when.
